reason is, it is usually easier and less costly if you are going to attack bank of america to attack it for software of one of these traditional hacks. is much harder to do it through the supply chain attack by putting something in the computer. however, from the government's perspective, this is an extremely serious problem, because if a weapons system could be infected through a manufactured attack, you cannot detect it. you do not get rid of it when the software is there, and it is absolutely possible to put in a back door or trojan horse, a logic bomb that will stay there and not be activated until we launch a weapon system, and then the weapon system could either not work or turn around and go against us. it is a very serious problem. if you are a nation state and your thinking of weapons of mass destructions, then a supply chain attack could become very attractive to you, much more than just trying to steal credit card information. >> it is easier to do it not on the supply chain. if your china and you have a lot of manufacturing going on within your boundaries and you have the a
